A week at Disney: Day 5

On our last day at Disney just Jessica, the boys, and myself went. Let me say this, I will never go to Disney again on a Saturday. Oh my!!! It was packed! It took us 20 minutes just to get on the monorail to go into the Magic Kingdom. Crazy!! Wesley was all ready being difficult. He wouldn't ride in his stroller, wouldn't take any bribes I offered him to ride in the stroller, wouldn't walk, and only I could carry him.

I really wanted to get a picture of the boys with Mickey and Minnie together like last years and that was the main reason I brought Wes with us and of course, we didn't really get one!

Max and Jessi went to ride Goofy's Barnstormer while Wes and I waited in line to see Mickey and Minnie. Max chickened out the first time but said he was really going to ride it this time. While in line he had to go to the bathroom so again, they had to jump ship. He never did get to ride it because the line doubled by the time we got out of seeing Mickey and Minnie.

We went over to Tomorrowland to see about riding Space Mountain. The wait was an hour long and we couldn't fast pass it since we had already did it for Peter Pan. The boys would have never made an hour wait so we had to by pass that one! We took a little break in the shade and had some cheese and grapes and that helped the boys' attitudes a bit. We decided to walk back towards Peter Pan and the boys rode the caurosel twice. Wes LOVES the caurosel and it's line wasn't bad. He wanted to ride Dumbo but he was already getting more cranky and line was so long and it was so hot I knew he would never make it. 


Both boys took a turn at the Sword in the Stone.

We still had time to kill before Peter Pan so we walked back over to Tomorrowland. We decided to take another break and get the boys an ice cream and it was here Wes totally broke down. He was screaming, kicking, and rolling around on the ground in the middle of Magic Kingdom. We got some dirty looks but thankfully it was short lived. He was fine once he had his Mickey Mouse ice cream in his hand.

We ended up riding the Tomorrowland tour cars just to kill some time and then fast passed the Buzz Light year ride. We went back and rode Peter Pan and then came back and did the Buzz ride. We were all tired and hot and in need of real food so we decided just to head out. It ended up being perfect timing for the parade. The boys had wanted a fan water bottle all week and I didn't want to buy one because they were $18. After carrying Wesley almost the entire day I broke down and bought one and let me say that was the best $18 I ever spent. He sat in his stroller the rest of the time just spraying the bottle over and over. He was soaking wet but I didn't even care at that point. I wish I had bought one sooner!!! The parade was great and we got a front row seat on the burning hot sidewalk!

The boys LOVED the band!

The boys were so excited to see Mary Poppins!

The ugly stepsister was talking to the man standing next to us.

The parade was the perfect way to end the day. We hit the gift shop on the way out and Wes finally went to sleep. It was a long, hot, fun filled day!

There were a few things we didn't get to do over our five days but it was so hard to get it all in. It would take 3 weeks to do all there is to do at Disney. We had a great time but I will never take another 1 almost 2 year old to Disney again!! Wesley LOVED it, he was so excited about everything, and he really enjoyed everything but all the waiting, containing him, and trying to keep him happy was awful!! He will be Max's age before we take him again. It was a great week and we had a blast but it was exhausting!! I am glad we went and the boys had such a good time! Lots of memories made and that's really what's it's about in the end!
